Laduguer is the god of strength, conquest, and power in duergar mythology.

Vox Machina discovered an effigy of Laduguer while exploring the Emberhold.[1] Tiberius memorized his features meticulously, and later transformed into the likeness of the god[2] to intimidate the duergar militia in the Emberhold's throne room in order to provide a distraction while the rest of Vox Machina attacked with the element of surprise.[3] Pike applied a spell (thaumaturgy) to amplify Tiberius's voice[4] and Keyleth assumed the form of a giant scorpion on which he rode.[5]

Appearances and mentions

Trivia

  • Laduguer shares many similarities with Azgrah, being a duergar who accomplished many feats and is worshiped like a god.[6] Azgrah may be considered Exandria's equivalent of Laduguer, with Laduguer's mention in Campaign One being an artifact of the early game and lore.
    • It is also possible that Azgrah, being considered an iconoclast, is taking attributions related to the duergar deity, thus attacking his cult in the process.[6]
